Goodness. I was looking up Randall Dyer organs and googled Due West ARP, found Barbara Lauderdale and on her page was your dad;s name. We did not know of his passing. Please accept our apologies and condolences. I enjoyed knowing your dad and mom both. They were such sweet people. They had a nice son too, and you really do favor your father. One look told me that. We will be praying for you, Ed. Richard and Joyce Thompson

Pastor Ed, You are in our thoughts and prayers. Your Dad will be greatly missed. We wish that we had gotten to know him better, but what little time we did know him it was a great joy. So sorry we couldn't be with you during this time, but know that we are thinking of you and the family. All our love, Benjie, Danna & Travis Smith
